Items in BOLD FACE are available from Outdoor Adventures for free use on our trips! OA also provides group gear such as stoves, cooking pots, fuel, water filters, rain tarps a group first aid kit, and other safety gear.

Please Remember: every item adds weight to your pack. If your pack weighs too much, it will be difficult to enjoy the trip. Each member of the group will be expected to carry a portion of the food and group supplies.

If the weather turns nasty, staying warm and dry is critical to your comfort and safety – please pack accordingly! Failure to meet the requirements for appropriate rain gear, hiking boots, etc. can be grounds for exclusion due to health and safety considerations. We highly recommend that you bring your equipment and clothing to the pre-trip meeting so we can go over your gear with you.
